COMMENTARY

ON
DO YOU HAVE THE HEART OF AN ADULTERER?

(Matt 5:28 [KJV])

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh (with desire to have her) on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

 

This one is for all those Christian couples that are in an intimate relationship. To understand if you do have the heart of an adulterer we must first look at what Godís conditions are for ďpermanentĒ separation (divorce) or should there be permanent separation. IMPORTANT: This sharing is about what Godís word says and not manís word. Manís ways are corrupt, degenerate, sinful, lost and will ultimately be disposed of in the lake of fire. Here we examine only Godís law; the law that each of us will be judged by. The believer will be judged at the judgment seat of Christ and the sinner/unbeliever at the great white throne judgement.

 

 

IMPORTANT: No adulterer will see the Kingdom of God.

 

Here we begin by examining what are the conditions that allow for a permanent separation with a couple. We first frame adultery.

 

In the following scripture Yeshua (Jesus) compares what was done in the Torah with what He says should be done now. In the Torah one could put away (divorce) a wife, but our Lord is NOW saying if you do it(save/except it be for fornication), you are putting her in a position to commit the grave sin of adultery if she goes with another man. NOTE for later: Why did Paul use the word fornication (porneia) and not adultery (moichao), when the man is already married to the woman? (she is called a wife) Ė This will be answered in a future link (to be placed here).

(Matt 5:31-32 [KJV])

It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement (Torah): 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery (His message to the believer): and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

 

Now let us look at what Paul the apostle says concerning separation/divorce from one man and being married to the next (if the first man is still alive). According to Paul, if she is married to another with the first man still alive, she is called an adulteress. This is in keeping with what Yeshua stated in Matt 5:32 (she has committed adultery after being put away and now she is called an adulteress).

(Rom 7:2-3 [KJV])

For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

 

So what is the solution, can there be no separation? Yes, there can be separation but one must stay alone or be reconciled to your husband that is still alive. Important Note: A MAN MUST NEVER PUT AWAY HIS WIFE (let not).

(1Cor 7:11 [KJV])

But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

 

Now let us get back on track. Do you have the heart of an Adulterer?

 

To students of the word, here we have Yeshua demonstrating how the letter of the law has to be applied to our hearts. Why? This is where sin starts; IN THE HEART.

(Matt 5:28 [KJV])

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh (with desire to have her) on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

 

Now we humbly submit, if you are already married and in your mind/heart you think the following:

 

1.       If this relationship does not work out I will get someone else (YOU ARE AN ADULTERER AT HEART).

 

2.       I am open to going into another relationship if my man does not change. (YOU ARE AN ADULTERER AT HEART).

 

3.       I cannot take it anymore and I am moving on, there is someone else out there that is better for me (YOU ARE AN ADULTERER AT HEART).

 

4.       I am going to leave him if he does not change his wicked ways, but I will have no other man intimately in my life as long as my husband lives (YOU DO NOT HAVE THE HEART OF AN ADULTERER Ė you are obedient in the eyes of God).

 

To the married woman: If you have in your mind being intimate with another man (while the one you have is still alive), in Godís kingdom you are an adulterer in the heart.

 

To the married man: If you have in your mind being intimate with another manís wife (If her husband is still alive), in Godís kingdom you are an adulterer in the heart. (This does not apply to a woman that is a virgin)

 

What happens to an adulterer? She or He will not see the Kingdom of God for it is written.

(1Cor 6:9 [KJV])

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

 

TTGM's humble advice - Deal with your heart, cast out the ďintent or willĒ to commit adultery, to steal, to lie, to hate etc. If your heart is unrighteous you will not see the Kingdom of God (you work iniquity - READ).

 

Question: Is your husband still alive and is it on your mind to have someone else?

We recommend you listen to what marraige is by God's book

 

Be Blessed as His Spirit helps you to understand His word..
